Shorebirds, for me, are somewhat of a challenge to identify — in part because I'm rarely really close, and even the mid-sized and large ones don't look very big or clearly distinguishable at a distance. I was lucky with this bird, as it stayed fairly near in the creek, even while I walked further along the path to catch its sunlit side.
What is this? Greater Yellowlegs (Grand Chevalier)
